Footfalls (足跡の谷 [ashiato no tani] or 'valley of footprints' in Japanese) is a valley at approximately sea level in western Thanalan, at the coast of the Rhotano Sea. Before the Calamity struck, most of Footfalls was below below Horizon's Edge, which stood on giant pillars of rock above Footfalls. There were gaps in the rock cover, however, and this gave the place its name as locals believed these gaps were made by giants walking through the area on their way to Vylbrand1.

In the Calamity, many of the rock pillars holding up Horizon's Edge collapsed, exposing more of the area, as well as ruins long hidden within it. As before, however, in the west Footfalls gives way directly to Vesper Bay, the main Ul'dahn commercial sea port in the present day. To the south-west is the village of Crescent Cove. The Royal Allagan Sunway cuts through the Footfalls on its way eastward to Horizon's Edge and beyond. To the north-west is Cape Westwind.



Moondrip (ムーンドリップ洞窟 [moondrip doukutsu] or 'moondrip cave' in Japanese) is a cavern in north-eastern Footfalls, right off the valley of Parata's Peace. The waters within glow due to the presence of tiny phosphorescent fauna2, and the soft glow is how the cave got its name. Unsatisfied with the mundane explanation of scholarlies however, there are those who sell the waters of the cave for its purported curative properties.

Parata's Peace

Parata's Peace (パラタの墓所 [parata no bosho] or 'grave site of parata' in Japanese) is a valley in northern Footfalls. It is named after a legendary monster called Parata, who is said to have been slain here after generations of assault on the local fishing villages and the occasional demand for virgin sacrifices.

The earth aspect aether of the area is much weakened (it is unknown if this is a recent thing brought on by the Calamity or not), which causes poisonous gases to gather in the still air of the valley. Locals attribute this to the dying curse of Parata.

The Silent King

The Silent King (物言わぬ王 [mono iwanu ou] or 'king who says nothing' in Japanese) is a series of ruins unearthed in the Calamity's shifting of earth, thought to be of Belah'dian origin. Several statues still litter the basin, although much of the stone has been hauled away by locals to rebuild their homes after the Calamity.
